Link VRAINS (
Duelists use D-Boards to Duel and are used to ride the Data Storm. Duelists can change forms when they Duel in Link VRAINS, similar to avatars. The Duels conducted here are conducted under the Speed Duel rules instead of the Master Rules in the real world.
Inside LINK VRAINS, a mysterious hacker group that hacks via Dueling has appeared: The Knights of Hanoi. Their goal is to destroy the "AI World" known as Cyberse that exists somewhere in the depths of the Network.
The interface possess a high-tech appearance. Such as a card only appears visible when a player is making a move. If a card with Multiple effects is activated, a circle appears and rotates upon the user's desire until the user selects their desired effect.
Link VRAINS was filled with a wind which duelists used to duel and ride D-Board's in Speed Duels. However it disappeared along with peoples memories of it. Inside the wind was said to contain another world called Cyberse.
At some point following the disappearance of Cyberse, the data material which was taken and placed into the network had been reduced. This resulted in a reduction in the network's efficiency by more than 30%.
Link VRAINS became a place where the top duelists and Charisma Duelists went. Regular Duels took the place of Speed Duels due to its absence.
At one point during Duels which involved GO and Blue Angel, the Knights of Hanoi attacked with "Cracking Dragon". They begun to attack users which resulted in accounts being deleted. Playmaker appeared and saved Blue Angel from an attack.
Ignis, who was taken as a hostage by Playmaker, unlocked data material from Cyberse to bring back the wind and Speed Duels. Playermaker then commenced a Duel against the Knight.
Similar to Action Duels, Dueling in Link VRAINS can bring real dangers. Any physical harm a person suffers while in Link VRAINS transfers to their real bodies. Being forcefully expelled from Link VRAINS after taking too much physical damage can also cause psychological damage.
When The Knights of Hanoi attacked Link VRAINS, their "Cracking Dragons" deleted the accounts of anyone engulfed in its flames. When Playmaker fell off his D-Board, Ignis said that a fall from that height could've killed his real body had he not been rescued by Blue Angel.
